There is Hunter as a writer of lyrics and as a writer of poems. He has had several books of poetry out(I have three books of his poetry). Do I pick them up as often as the Box of Rain book, no. Hardly ever. But he was very influenced by poetry and other literature. A big part of his cultural milieu were the beats, so he carried that as did Dylan into the lyric form. The next phase. I have seen him (Hunter) mention Lew Welch (one of my favorites) and Lew was very influenced by WCW.
